Default TC9...3D Fat Loss

Time for another contest and I like to get to the start line early (I was the first poster last time too ).

I'm not planning to start until around 15 September but by creating my contest thread now, I'm indicating to myself (and to the rest of the TT forum) my commitment to participate and kick some tail in burning some fat and getting fit.

I have a feeling....this is going to be a really good one!

It's presently the Ramadhan, the Muslim month of fasting, so it's difficult getting in the intense workouts and intervals needed (can't even drink water). The month ends on 10 September when there is a 3-day holiday to celebrate and then...it's down to business!

That really cool that you are fasting for Rhamadan.

There is this Vikings player (NFL) Husein Abdullah who has been fasting for Rhamadan through the entire training camp and preseason. He has played great and its pretty inspiring to see him out there on the field making plays knowing that he is fasting. I think Katie Couric did a story on him, but its been all over our local paper.

Much respect to you for your sacrifices.

Thanks for the comments and support. Interesting about the Vikings player...I'll try and read up some more about him. It's quite admirable being to do all that training and playing football whilst abstaining from food and drink.

The toughest part this year is not being able to drink anything - it's typically 42 deg C during the day!

I've decided to bring my start date forward so Day 1 will be 11 September (I always like to start on a Saturday so that I can finish on a Friday - that's my weekend here and so I'm almost always home and can get my wife to take my pics).

Good luck, Waleed, and I am sure that you will have another successful transformation contest! My first year college roommate fasted during Ramadhan and it was quite challenging to juggle with school, but fortunately there was a strong community of Muslim students and special dining accommodations for that time which helped tremendously. I admire your dedication and wish you the best!

Hi Waleed.
Decided to pop in and say hi! I just posted my thread, and I am so ready for this...... We will take this TC9 by storm you and me
How is your fasting going? As you said, it must be very hard not to even drink water when it's so hot.... keep strong, your attitude is inspiring......
Cheers,

Thanks a lot Ion. I'm going to be sure to be more active in the forums this time - I always do better when I post my workouts and nutrition.
